linuxworld: Doc Searls makes some good points about blog ranking. It's so bogus, but it's so much fun people can't stop doing it. So here is the Official Linux Blog Top 40 List, divided into A, B, C, and D lists for your status-seeking convenience.
zdnet blogs: Ross Turk of Sourceforge (right) was troubled by my post about Mashable’s Open Source God, which to him read as though I were calling Sourceforge a site meant exclusively for developers. That is its perceived niche, and its greatest strength, something it should be proud of.
Linux Today: The first story wasn't even about Linux; it was about the release of Apache 1.3.2. Dave Whitinger posted that story at this time in the early morning of September 28, 1998 (Eastern time).
Also: Happy Birthday, OpenSSH
And: Google Turns 9
builderau: Intel has launched an effort called LessWatts.org on Thursday, a combination of open-source software and helpful hints to reduce power consumption of Linux servers, PCs and gadgets.
Linux Insider: What's a poor, lonely Linux developer to do? Where are all the good support sites? How am I going to fix that troublesome bug?
blogbeebe: I'm no friend of Pamela Jones, owner and proprietress of Groklaw. From time to time over the years I've stumbled upon the odd post and thread that, for whatever reason, would disappear over time, expunged by She Who Must Be Obeyed.
As you may have noticed, DistroWatch.com is now back up. The attack continues, but Ladislav was able to bring the site back online after ruthless DDOS attacks rendered the site inaccessible for much of the weekend.
Lew Wolfgang: Starting yesterday evening I've been getting browser timeouts on http://software.opensuse.org/. Something wrong? It's been down about 24-hours now.
Also: Quickies: openSUSE 10.3 Beta3+ Live-CDs, 10.3 Beta 3 Report, oSC Changes, KDE 4.0 Beta 2
ZDNet: Americans might pay more for DSL and cable modem bills starting November 1, thanks to politicians in the U.S. Congress who have yet to extend a federal moratorium limiting taxes on those services.
